Air Force loses to UC San Diego, 9-3

The SoCal Tournament went better than expected for the No. 14 ranked Air Force Falcons, they were able to pull off an upset over No. 12 ranked UC Davis. That win allowed Air Force to finish between eighth and 12th place, and while they finished 12th, the tournament was still a success.

The final game of the tournament saw Air Force stumble against conference mate UC San Diego 9-3. Air Force just had a bad first quarter where they fell into a 4-1, and then trailed 6-1 at the half. That deficit was one that the Falcons could not recover from.

The three players who scored against UC San Diego were Brad Rajchel, Alex Arcidiacono and Dillon Fisher. Goalie Mike Fish had a very good game by registering 13 saves.

No. 11 UC San Diego 9, No. 14 Air Force 3
Air Force
- 1 0 1 1 - 3
UCSD - 4 2 2 1 - 9
AF Scoring: Rajchel, Arcidiacono, Fisher
UCSD Scoring: Stiling 3, Donohue 3, Butler, Michalko, Higginson

Air Force falls 13-7 to Long Beach State

With the Air Force Falcons upsetting UC Davis on Saturday night, that put them in the 8th to 12th place bracket for Sunday's final games at the SoCal Tournament. In Sunday's opening match Air Force was taking on No. 9 ranked Long Beach St. 49ers.

This would be a tough test for Air Force and the end result was Long Beach State getting a 13-7 win. Losing to Long Beach State is nothing to be ashamed of as they are ranked in the top 10, but what this game does is to show how close -- or far -- Air Force is to the top teams in the country.

Long Beach State is in the MPSF and are the worst team in that league, that is not real fair to say since Long Beach State is an excellent program. However, the MPSF owns the top nine spots in the latest Collegiate Water Polo Association Top 20 poll.

Up next for Air Force is their final game where they will take on the loser between Loyola Marymount or UC San Diego, both are WWPA teams, at 5:20 p.m. MT.

Cal crushes Air Force 22-4 at SoCal Tournament

The No. 14 ranked Air Force Falcons were hoping for a better showing when they faced No. 4 California Golden Bears 22-4. Cal just came out strong and rushed out to a 5-1 lead after the first quarter, and the scored five goals in every quarter including six in the final frame.

Air Force just did not have the players to keep up with this high powered Cal offense, and goalie Mike Fish was unable to stop the barrage of shots that came his way. Air Force attacker Kevin Womack led the way as he scored pair of goals for the Falcons.

With this being the second game against Cal, it was thought that Air Force would be able to at least have a better showing this time around. That obviously was not the case as Cal is looking very, very good

Air Force's second game is against No. 12 UC Davis. Davis also lost their first round match as they fell to No. 5 ranked UC Irvine 11-6.
